Good people doing bad things
1 July 2013 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

I saw this film on the strength of Steven Knight being the writer and director.

As with two of his other films (Dirty Pretty Things and Eastern Promise) it provides a dark view into the London that you always suspected might be there but prefer not to think about. I went with an open mind because I'd not heard of Agata Buzek and I'm no fan of Jason Statham, but this is a truly superb story and the delivery by all of the cast is excellent.

What Steven Knight does so amazingly well in all of his films is show us essentially good people struggling to do the right things because of their personal circumstances. Both Statham and Buzek are flawed characters. They both know how they should behave but somehow can't live up to that ideal. The strength of the film is in watching the internal anguish of these characters as they try to overcome their current situation whilst at the same time both are looking for some form of 'redemption' for their past actions.

The other 'star' of the film, for me, is the location. Knight clearly has a thorough knowledge of London and the Covent Garden setting is well thought through in the way that it fits with other aspects of the film (Stathams 'employment' and Buzeks lifelong obsession are both within easy walking distance).

I'm not sure this film would make my top 10 list, but it definitely gets into the top 50.
